Have you wished you could swap your chocolate brown eyes of a pair of baby blues without the hassle of colored contacts? Even Dorothy wanted her brown eyes turned blue to match her gown. Permanent eye color change isn't a new concept, but traditionally it involves surgery and an iris implant.
But a Laguna Beach, Calif., doctor is saying he has a more simple procedure that uses lasers. According to the local KTLA news report, Homer has been working on the technology for 10 years and its almost ready for the public:
But cosmetic preference is not the only reason Homer thinks people want to have this procedure done. He says that since eyes are the window to the soul people would prefer a lighter color that you can "see deeply into".
" I think there is something very meaningful about this idea of having open windows to the soul," Homer told KTLA.
According to the report, the cost for the procedure will be about $5,000. In terms of safety, Homer says they have several safety tests in place, but he accepts the fact that something unknown could happen later down the road after the procedure.
